Greg, I as well am heading over for the fourth time. Oct as well, however I usually am there in Sept. Looking forward to it. It is likely my last time, this as I retire this year, but most importantly my daughter is once again coming with me. She will be the shooter this year. My fingers are crossed. Did my Ferry bookings this week as well, wait to long and a cabin is not in the cards..

Yes Greg it is expensive. The cheapest I heard of over there is 3K. My first trip, which was a fly in was $4300.00. I only went once there, that same place now is $5300.00. Been going to another place, will be three years this fall, price is $3500.00/$500.00 for a Non Hunter, although I heard other Hunters last year saying they paid more than that?  I start saving my Dimes a year in advance. I love going over, I could get real used to Moose Hunting exclusively.  Perhaps some rich relative can help me out in the years to come. LOL

I hunt the SW part, Codroy area about 2 hours up in the mountains from there on Argo/J5, My outfitter is out of Doyles. He hunts in three Zones but my preference has been the camp (Tents) in MMA 9. I also have my meat Vacuum sealed , I use the Butcher right in Doyles. His work is up to that of Reid's here in the Valley. Excellent work indeed.

It,s a very scenic place to hunt and always interesting to meet your guide and hear their stories.If you hear an engine over there,its probably a floatplane,not three guys with loaded rifles in the back of a pickup,looking for their third moose of the week.

Very Scenic indeed, very open where i hunt, correct as well on engine sounds, no Trucks, not even ATV's where i am. They would not get there through the bogs, at least mine would not. Argos have a hard enough time through that stuff.

 

Greg, are you hunting with the outfitter up there  that offers "Ruff it Hunts"?

Been paying $3500.00 CDN Taxes included for the third year now. The Lodge just up the road from him is 3K. My outfitter was sold our prior to Xmas at least in MMA 9. There will be cancellations as usual I assume.

I'm hunting MMA 8, I got drawn for a bull tag as a resident. I'm pretty excited as I am yet to harvest a moose.
